Fishing Highlights:

Got a late start, but it didn't seem to matter. It was a small group today. The Eco pond fished real well this morning 4 fish to the net and and 3 LDR's we had had fun. After lunch the temps got high and the fish started hiding. We did manage a couple more to the net, but we had to get creative.

The fishing is fair.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Crystal Clear.
